5 stars from 1 rating of Badam (almond) Halwa

Hands full of Nuts :)

Halwa @ its best I would say. Badam (Almond) halwa is a rich and amazingly tasty indian dessert prepared with the most nutritious Nuts Almond. This is one of our family favourite halwa and I tried my late granny's recipe with little improvisation of mine.

Delicious Halwa from my Kitchen Space :)

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: Serves six to eight people

  • 2 tbsp Cashew, soaked in warm water for 15min
  • 1 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp Saffron, or eight thread of saffron
  • 1 cup Fine Coarse Sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup Ghee, ( clarified Butter)

Lets Make it :)

  1. Grind blanched almonds and soaked cashew with little milk and prepare a smooth paste.
  2. Melt ghee in a kadhai and keep the ghee aside. In the same kadhai ( Thick bottom pan) bring 1/4 cup of water to boil, switch off the flame, add sugar and stir let the sugar dissolve completely.
  3. Now add the badam paste, remaining milk, saffron mixed with little milk and cook on medium flame stirring continuously for about 10 minutes.
  4. Once it starts thickening and the sides start getting a flaky texture add the melted ghee except 2 tsp and stirring continuously on low flame.
